As we speak now, eight (8) artists are now tirelessly painting otherwise dull-looking walls around Bonifacio Global City. The Bonifacio Arts Foundation (BAFI) and Globe, launches ArtBGC NextAct ONE Festival – a weeklong mural festival featuring a mix of international and local artists painting across the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) district. ONE, will be the first arts and culture initiative of this size and scope in BGC and will be a transformative event in the development.
Their creations will come to life on the building walls of One Global Place, Bonifacio Technology Center, Icon Plaza, C1 Building Bonifacio High Street Central, The Palace Pool Club, all the way to the smaller facades of Bonifacio High Street.
“Globe is very excited to be part of this endeavor as part of our continuing The NextACT campaign. It is very fitting to collaborate with LeBasse Projects and BAFI as it breathes life to what ACT is all about – Art, Community and Technology. These three (3) elements are the anchor of the country’s first-ever mural-centric arts festival which brings together a community of artists and art communities here and abroad, and through technology and social media, we expect this Festival to reach the rest of the world and mark another milestone in art history,” said Joe Caliro, Head of Retail Transformation and Management at Globe.
